What are Forma Treatments?

Updated: May 3, 2023

As we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity and firmness, leading to wrinkles, sagging skin, and other signs of aging. While there are many treatments available that promise to restore a more youthful appearance, some are more invasive or require more downtime than others. Forma is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. In this blog post, we'll explore the benefits of Forma treatments and what you can expect from the process.

What is Forma? Forma is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. The treatment is performed using a handheld device that emits radiofrequency energy into the skin, heating the tissue and stimulating the production of new collagen fibers. Collagen is a protein that gives skin its strength and elasticity, and as we age, our bodies produce less of it. By stimulating collagen production, Forma can help to restore a more youthful, toned appearance to the skin.

Benefits of Forma: Forma treatments offer a number of benefits for those looking to improve the appearance of their skin. Some of the main benefits include:

  1. Non-invasive: Unlike many other skin tightening treatments, Forma is non-invasive and requires no incisions or injections. This means that there is no downtime or recovery period needed, and you can return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment.

  2. Safe: Forma is a safe treatment that has been cleared for use in cosmetic procedures. The radiofrequency energy used in the treatment is carefully controlled to ensure that it does not damage the skin or surrounding tissue.

  3. Effective: Forma treatments have been shown to be effective in improving skin laxity, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and restoring a more youthful appearance to the skin. Results can be seen immediately after the treatment, with continued improvement over time as the body produces new collagen.

  4. Customizable: Forma treatments can be customized to meet the unique needs of each patient. The treatment can be adjusted based on factors such as skin type, age, and the specific concerns of the patient, ensuring that each treatment is tailored to provide the best possible results.

  5. Long-lasting: While the results of Forma treatments are not permanent, they can be long-lasting with proper maintenance. Patients can expect to see results that last for several months to a year or more, depending on their individual skin type and the extent of the treatment.

What to Expect During a Forma Treatment: Before your Forma treatment, you will have a consultation with us at the purglow Medical Spa to discuss your goals for the treatment and determine if Forma is the right option for you. During the treatment, a handheld device will be used to deliver radiofrequency energy to the treatment area. You may feel a warm sensation during the treatment, but it should not be uncomfortable or painful.

The treatment typically takes between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area. After the treatment, you can immediately return to your normal activities without any downtime or recovery period needed. You may notice some mild redness or swelling in the treatment area, but this should subside within a few hours.

It is important to follow any post-treatment instructions provided by the purglow Medical Spa to ensure optimal results and minimize any potential side effects. This may include avoiding direct sun exposure, using gentle skincare products, and avoiding strenuous exercise for a short period after the treatment.
